Nancy Ward: Ghi-ga-u (Beloved Woman) of the Cherokee was a very important title. It was believed that the Supreme Beings often spoke to the people through the Ghi-ga-u, and they were given absolute power in the question of what happens to prisoners taken in war. Nancy did not hesitate to use that power. During the Revolution War she used her status to save many American prisoners that were going to be killed by Native Americans. by tina
